    We took a long drive down to the Punjab to visit a project and on the way stopped off at truck stops that were unfailingly clean and friendly. It seems that the truckers have high standards and dislike sharing their stops with busses who have to go to other places. We often stopped just to have a cup of tea but also ate fantastic curries with chapattis. Highly recommended.
